Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Bruchac, of Abenaki, English and Slovak ancestry, follows the old ways, honoring tradition by storytelling only between first and last frosts. In this, his latest collection, twenty-four myths from nineteen Peoples give tribute to nature and Native American heritage. The stories are alternately funny, sad and hopeful, and the characters range from brave to loving to reckless. Each learns a valuable lesson that is shown, not told. Bruchac also has recorded two tapes to accompany the book. The tapes feature flute and percussion pieces along with Bruchac's gentle but dramatic voice ($16.95). There is also a teaching guide ($9,95).
